Meet The Team
Hiya! I’m Becca. I was born and raised in Cleveland, OH, but call Upstate SC home. I spent the past 6 years living, working, and exploring Southern Appalachia before deciding to venture out here to Gunni! I have two adorable and very friendly cats, Belle Pepper and Phoenix, who you will probably meet during your visit. I am a big fan of hiking and backpacking, and enjoy rock climbing casually. I am passionate about experiential education and have been an active participant in Couchsurfing both stateside and internationally! You can usually find me wandering outside or curled up with a good book. Very excited to explore Colorado and discover all this valley has to offer!
Hi everyone, I’m Bela! I come from the beautiful PNW, near Seattle, where I was born and raised. I finished Pastry school in December of 2021, and have been travelling ever since. I have always loved to explore new places so I am very excited for my new adventure here. A few fun facts: I love a good suspense book, I'm a dog lover, and a foodie.
Heya! I’m Mikaela, here in Gunni by way of Gulfport, FL. My travels this past year took me across the country but PNW & love of the mountains were calling me back! You can most likely find me camping or hammocking next to a river or waterfall, paddling a river or lake, or just getting lost off the beaten path! So very excited for the new adventures here in the valley and new sunny faces!
